On Twitter today we got into a lengthy discussion on hamstring injury’s in soccer, and what we might be doing to reduce the risk…
@athletefitcoach Very weak LPHC. Not much ab/ad work done previously to stabilize knee/hip for changing directions/sprint stride efficiency

After some discussion I thought it would be easier to put up some video and discuss some of the best exercises we know for developing the hamstrings in soccer players. Here’s a few to get the discussion started.
Lets add to this list, remove from this list, and make some comments on what we use and why. Over the next week or so we should be able to come up with a good list of exercises.
